Ok, Dark Energon Megatron. In the Transformers Prime show Megatron is looking for the Life force of Unicron to power him and his army up. While it did power him up it also created zombies of the dead. So we in turn got one of our first zombie Transformers stories. Which was well the thing at the time with shows like Walking dead and comics like Marvel Zombies, Dc Black Lantern saga, and my favorite rainbow Brite vs the Zombie Purple Pieman. Which I have to say was almost as awesome as Sharknado. Well way after the fact BBTS released the BBTS Exclusive Dark Energon figures. They included repaints of voyager Prime and Megs, and deluxe Starscream, Bumblebee, Wheeljack, and Knockout. Each of these redecoed translucent bots and cons is the result of exposure to Dark Energon, which twists the mind and powers the body, eventually corrupting and destroying the user. With the Decepticons trying to use the Dark Energon to take over earth, Optimus Prime and the other Autobots are forced to expose themselves to it, so that they are able to take on the Decepticons on their own terms. Will they be able to defeat Megatron and his crew in time for Ratchet to reverse the process, flush the Dark Energon from their systems and save them from a horrid fate?
Megatron returns in a new color scheme of shades of purple, Black and a very deep blue. And I have to say I like these colors on him.
Megatron returns in his spacecraft mode just cooler looking.
Now I do wish the light pale purple parts were a bit darker but it still works. The colors really give him a sleek menacing fighter look. Very cool indeed. As can be seen Megatron's cannon and claw can be attached to his Vehicle mode.
Well as stated its a basic recolored Megatron figure. Now I have to say this really gives him a more evil feel to him. Even with the Light purple parts. You can add his weapons on to him to make him look even more threatening.
Megatron comes with his Cannon and a claw weapon. Really does give him the Gladiator look. And thanks to his articulation it allows you to do some great poses.
The cannon does have the sword feature but unfortunately it can't be locked in place.
Ok now I have to say if you just pick and choose figures then this one isn't for you. For those like me Its a must have. I love cool looking repaints. I don't mind if its the same mold recolored as long as it looks cool. Now does the figure have issues, Yes it has the same weak hip ball joints. But to be honest I rather get this figure cheap now then pay triple the price later.
